Tour in one of the most luxurious tour vehicles in Scotland with a knowledgeable and passionate Highland Guide. This includes chilled bottled water, Scottish snacks/soft drinks and drams of single malt whisky from bottles I select out of my private collection for those who like a whisky plus artisan chocolates that compliment the keynotes of each whisky.
What You'll Get
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Dunrobin Castle and Gardens, Golspie KW10 6SF Scotland
The adventure begins as soon as you are picked up from your accommodation. The tour starts by climbing in to the hills through Ardross to one of the best views in Scotland. (in our opinion)
Millionaires Viewpoint (as it's known to the locals) is the first stop and there will be plenty time to take pictures before the tour descends in to the Glen through Bonar Bridge on your way to Falls of Shin and the Salmon Leap. Atlantic Salmon can often be seen leaping the falls, making the final push toward their birthplace for the cycle to start all over again. (optional)
Then it's a short drive to Dunrobin Castle & Gardens which is very popular with locals and it always goes down well with our guests. The falconry display is amazing - Andy (The Falconer) has been working with local birds for over 25 years and his knowledge and passion shine through. He's a very interesting character and many people say it's the best they've seen in the world. The castle looks like it is straight out of a fairy-tale and set in the Scottish Highlands it looks magnificent. Dunrobin also has a wonderfully unique museum and taxidermy collection.
Carn Liath is only a 2 minute drive north of Dunrobin Castle and is a fine example of a broch – a type of fortification found only in Scotland. It also offers great views of Dunorbin Castle
The adventure then heads south through Golspie to the Royal Burgh of Dornoch, one of Scotland's most picturesque villages. It is home to a stunning golden sandy beach and a world class golf course but even without these things it just takes you to another time altogether. Highly, highly recommend!! The old Jail has been turned into a shop selling locally made, hand crafted gifts, jewellery and works of art, if you're looking for souvenirs. The Cathedral also draws lots of visitors with a collection of beautiful stained glass windows.
Dornoch is also a great place to stop for lunch with lots of options including a local bakery, a patisserie, a gallery, and our favourite the Royal Golf Hotel - Scottish Hospitality at its very best plus the food is really really good, so there's something to suit all tastes.
The next stop on the itinerary is often a tour and tasting at the world famous Glenmorangie Distillery. Glenmorangie Distillery is one of the best marketed whiskies in the world and has the tallest whisky stills in the world. Their visitor centre is fantastic and they have a great range of whiskies available for tasting.
The day then winds down with a drive through Tain, Scotland's oldest Royal Burgh on the way back to your accommodation.
